This week’s Media Create software chart sees four new releases in the top ten, all of which appear on a Nintendo handheld! Fire Emblem: Awakening is the triumphant chart topper this week, selling 242 600 copies within just four days of its release. This strategy RPG from Paper Mario developer Intelligent Systems boasts a beautiful anime art style and complex combat mechanics that clearly resonate with Japanese gamers.

The next best-selling title was Code of Princess on 3DS. This action RPG stars a buxom blonde protagonist and features side-scrolling levels that support four-player co-op.
